Silence perpetrates the abuse

Silence perpetrates the abuse.  Whether it comes in the form of sexual harassment, sexual misconduct or sexual assault, most women have experienced it in one form or another.  The statistics I learned long ago in my sexual assault crisis counselor training are that one in every three women are a victim of sexual abuse.  Those numbers only represent those who have spoken, been heard, and tallied.  Everyone reacts in their own unique way.   Not everyone speaks.  We cannot presume to know how each woman feels. 
I was thinking it was time for me to find my voice. #metoo  I happened to run into a female friend at the post office this morning who echoed my very thoughts,  that abuse of women is normal.  It has become a way of life.
For me, it started in childhood with my family and then it was reinforced in school and work.  It mattered not what type of job I had whether a waitress in a pizza parlor or a prosecuting attorney.  It is pervasive everywhere.  “Normal”.  Surely, it is not a good normal.  I, like many, have been hoping it would change. 
What I know from my own personal experience as well as working with other women, is that sexual misconduct whatever its form, affects us intricately.  It is insidious, a thread that winds itself through so much of who we are.  It can affect everything from our body image, our self-esteem, our judgment, our confidence, job performance, our relationships and so much more.  Each woman must choose for herself her own unique healing journey, hopefully, back to wellness and wholeness. 
We have learned to be silent because it has never really been safe to speak up.  We are often blamed and not taken seriously.  Sometimes speaking up can even cause further abuse. 
I am speaking only to the abuse of women because it is my perspective from who I am.
No matter what form the abuse has taken it is a violation to a woman.  It is additional abuse to minimize it.  It is additional abuse to discount it.  It is additional abuse to silence her.  It is additional abuse to do nothing.
The day that Donald Trump became president despite allegations of sexual abuse was a very dark day for me.  It indicated how far we have yet to travel in the fair and just treatment of women.  I personally felt violated and unsafe once again.  If this conduct was not a bar to service in the highest office in the country how can there be any hope at all.
What has been in the news lately about women coming forward and being heard is surprising.  Not that there are so many of them.  Not that it is present in all walks of life.  But, that something is finally being done about it.   
It has occurred to me that perhaps we (as a people) really did need to go about this the hard way.  Perhaps it had to get so bad and patently obvious that there was no denying it any longer.
All through my life when I heard a report of a woman being harmed and not being honored it felt like a personal affront.  I felt each time it happened that it proved how much I deserved all I had experienced at the hands of men who had the power and authority to hurt me.
Over the years of my own healing journey, I have come to understand that the opposite is true.  When a known abuser was acquitted, or transferred rather than fired, or elected to high office, it did not reflect upon me at all. 
I know now with absolute certainty that I matter.  My thoughts and feelings, my body and my choice, all matter.  I deserve honor and respect.  All beings do. 
Ellen simplifies the sentiment so profoundly when she reminds us to be kind to one another.  It is not hard to do.  All spiritual practices and religions encompass some form of the creed to do unto others.  It is a good place to start. 

Breaking the silence is a wonderful beginning.  We must never underestimate the power of the woman.

The frequency of Unconditional Love

Here is a message from the Angels.  They tell me that this is the most important message of all.  This is the basis of EVERYTHING!

"The opportunity is right at hand for an influx, a vibrational download, of unconditional love.  Those of you on this path have been getting ready for many years now as all that is not love has been coming up repeatedly to be cleared and released.  

It is time now to enjoy the high vibration alternative that is unconditional love rather than continuing to cling to that which you have all become accustom. 

We shine this pure unconditional love forth for you at all times.  We encourage you to embrace it within yourself and then shine it out for All.

To be in a place to receive the flow of un-condition-al love you must be without conditions.  Can you love without any conditions?  Can you be in love without any conditions?  Can you just feel love, be love?  Can you feel our love for you?  We hold the stream steady for you.  Can you be fully engaged in love in the simple moments of your time?  A sunset, a creative endeavor...  How about puppy-love? Can you feel that love from your animal companion?  Can you love like your dog?

Can you let go of the old ways and open up to the infinite, unlimited possibilities now at your fingertips?  Can you embrace love fully?  Can you feel the love within you so fully that nothing else matters, nothing else outside of that love.  

It all begins within you, with self love.  We assure you that you are not being "selfish".  You are, in fact, becoming self-full!  So that you have even more love to share.

As above so below.  We hold high-light and pure love consistently and completely,  and so, too, can you!"

Samhain message from our Ancestors

Here's a channeled message from our Ancestors.  Blessed Samhain & Happy Halloween.

"Are the old ways long forgotten
or have they stood the test of time,

Do you know where to search for answers
& how to connect to the Divine,

We can show you how to cast the stones
and read the tarot, too,

Especially at this time of year
when everything begins anew,

You don't have to search far & wide
the answers you seek are already inside."

2 messages today!

Today we have two messages coming forward for us as we move from August to September, from Summer into Fall:

1.  Our first channeled message is a simple yet powerful prayer/intention to bring us comfort, reassurance and connection.  If you say, think, or chant it at the same time you are breathing deeply, it can become an everyday meditation for you.

"I allow Mother Earth to support and nourish me,
  I allow Father Sky to guide and light my way,
  All is truly well."

2.  Our second channeled message is more specific guidance for you.

"A profound time of change and growth is upon you.  You are being forced to view the world with new, clear and improved eyes.  Each one of you is a vessel for change and enlightenment.  It is up to you.  We ask you, 'what are you using to fill yourself up'?  Your vessel can hold and contain unlimited amounts of light.  This is how it is meant for you.  This is why you are here now at this time.  You have come forth with an advanced play book.  You have the knowledge and intuition to access the Truth for all that it is worth.  You must ask yourself, are you filling yourself up with light?  Or, are you in fact empty?  Those are the only two choices.  You cannot give from an empty cup (vessel).  So you must seek shelter from the storm and refill.   Only then can you be the change you wish to see in the world.

Un-kind-ness stems from the mistaken belief that we are not of the same kind.  When the Truth of the matter is that we are all One."

August message from Gaia & the Ancestors (and Tashi)

Thought I'd use the Dreams of Gaia cards today outside to help channel a message from Gaia & the Ancestors (and apparently Tashi, my cat!!! can see her paws on the top pic, too):

"It is the image of rain coming down on a cloudy day with intervals of sun that we are showing to you.  This is your forecast for August.  The energy is ripe for change.  Deep change from within.  Emotional healing and release.  If you are not ready to unearth the emotional wounds that you carry (your own, your family, your culture, your planet), it may be quite a bumpy ride.  

You have learned a myriad of survival techniques since coming in to this life journey.  You cover up and hide your emotional scars in a multitude of creative ways.  We see some of you using food, drink...and other substances/addictions to carry on.  Some bury the goodness and act out in blind aggression.  While others hide away in a pattern of avoidance.  It is time for these old stagnant ways to subside.  It is time to come into the flow of light and connection that is your birthright.

August energy seeks to blow your survival mechanisms wide open.  So hang on.  The stage is set.  But, you are not alone.  There are many who have come before and can show you the way forward.  Reach out!!!  Ask for help and guidance from those right beside you on this journey who you may have not noticed before, both there and here in Spirit.  

It is a wonderful time for those who have been brave enough to walk toward the path of enlightenment leaving struggle behind.  The energies are here to help you soar!  

It is a magnification of wherever you might be.  An emotional whirlwind of energy & light.  Stay grounded.  Connect to Terra Firma, your Great Mother Earth.  She is the best teacher you know. 

Remember there is always bright sunshine high above the stormy sky!"

Happy Fairy Friday Reading

Happy fairy Friday! How about a reading today!!! "There is a powerful full moon this weekend that can bring up some strong emotions for you. It would be in your best interest to withdraw as much as possible from conflict and drama. Spend time in nature. Surround yourself with peace. As within so without (as above so below). As we are clearing ourselves from toxic situations and people on the outside, so too do we need to match that with clean food options on the inside." (used cards from the Magical Messages from the Fairies deck by D.V.)

Summer, 2017 Channeled Message from the Angels

Our Summer of 2017 channeled message from the Angels is on our website special feature section:

Your Story Channel

Your Story
They are just stories.  Stories told and foretold.  Stories are retold.  Some are told from pain.  Some for effect.  Some to teach future generations.  Sometimes stories are told to inspire.  Stories have beginnings, a middle and an end.  Stories can be rewritten turning metal into gold. 

Stories can be interpreted in so many varied ways.  Some people let their stories define them.  Some people are always looking to create a new story.  Stories can be written in pages.  Stories can be orally told.  Stories in a book can be lost, burned, stored, reread, revered, hidden, hated, and revealed.

Stories can be changed.   Stories are malleable.  They can be fleeting.  They can be transmuted.

For many, their story is etched on the lines of their face or held deep in their cells and tissues.
The story is yours.  You can keep it, keep repeating it, or you can change it, forever.  Is it serving you?  Is it feeding you?

Edit and retell it.  Edit and retell it until…  Or, stop telling it completely.  Your story defines not just who you have been but also who you have yet to be.

Message of Support

"We (your Angels, Guides, Ancestors,…) are strongly focused there with you.  More so now than ever before in the history of all time.  To feel our presence and reassurance you must stay in the higher vibrations of light, hope, faith, and unconditional love from Source.  There is no stronger force than the light of who we are together with the light of who you are.  Focus on the light that is all around you.  To make a difference in your world, you must stand in the powerful connection of light.  From that place, you will be guided to inspired, appropriate action."

Mother Earth Channel for the New Year

"There is more to hope for now than ever before
So do not despair even for one moment in time

Our Mothers and Daughters and Sisters all know
The way forward through the darkness and into the light

We have all done this before
Time and time again

There is nothing new here
It is all an integral part of our herstory

We have always been lighting our own and each other’s candles
In the midst of the strong winds of change

We are gaining momentum now unlike any other time before
It has all been coming to this

Understanding, strength, wisdom & connection are our calling cards
Never underestimate the power and guiding light of the Woman

We are joining across the span of time and space
Across the oceans far and wide

We are carrying the voices of all generations
Those before us and those yet to come forth

There is only one path forward
Bringing the certainty of peace, light and divine love as only we can

For we are the Creators as we have always been
Bringing forth new life in all of its many forms

The prophesy holds true
There is only one way

The return of the Divine Feminine in all its glory
Shining brightly through everyone once again

The return is coming.
No matter what.

And it is so
Blessed be to all"

Message for the New Year, 2017

"The veil between our worlds is getting thinner and thinner for those of you who are committed to fine tuning your frequencies to the levels of your ancestors and all the beings of light who are here to help you create a new world.  It can be everything you have ever dreamed it to be.  Peace, light and hope abound, you have only to open the door and connect with all that you are.  Travel through the times, be the guiding light into the future.  It is going to be the best of times.  It can also be the worst of times, too.  The choice remains yours to make.  If you elevate your frequencies and release the baggage of old that weighs you down, there will only be one choice available for you to experience after all~love, joy, & all that is~ and you will then enjoy the best of both worlds."
